RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- Customers of Mobily (Etihad Etisalat Company), a leading telecom operator in Saudi Arabia, will soon enjoy enhanced voice and data services with improved network connectivity and coverage. For this, the operator has selected Nokia Solutions and Networks’ Single RAN (radio access network) and comprehensive services, including refarming of the GSM 900 MHz band to 3G. NSN will upgrade Mobily’s 2G, 3G (WCDMA) and TD-LTE networks in the central region including Riyadh, the largest city in the country. As committed in July last year, the operator is undertaking major network upgrades and expansions to provide an unmatched service experience for its customers.

Under the contract, NSN is providing Mobily with its Single RAN platform, based on its award-winning, compact, energy-efficient Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station. The company is also providing its network management software, NetAct and Performance Manager to enable consolidated monitoring, management, and operation of Mobily’s 2G, 3G and LTE networks. The services scope includes network planning, optimization, system integration, implementation and care services for a smooth upgrade and expansion of the operator’s networks.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
